Most of this book is about fermentation, for it is an excellent way to prolong the life of many foods and to build proteins and vitamins into starchy or low-grade goods. Most western peoples are familiar with yeast breads, sourdoughs, chsses and beers. But few of us realise how skillfully traditional peoples enhance the flavours of their diet, or make simple carbohydrates nutritions through fermentation
Emphasizing the enhancement of nutrition, this is one of the most comprehensive books available today on the subject of storing and preserving foods. Recipes and processing methods have been collected from indigenous people worldwide. These practical and traditional techniques , many of which were nearly lost forever, have been collated and set out in a well-defined and easy to follow manual which is of value to anyone interested in processing and storing food.
A practical handbook about the astonishing range of ferments, that is more than just a recipe book. Written to help people store and process their own food and make their own ingredients. A survival handbook which is of great use to farmers trying to vary their resources by adding value to their crops. As an essential companion to the gardener and cook, it takes the mystery out of the complex fermentation process and enables us to plan our crops around the end product of a rich and nutritious diet. If you love food this is for you.
